Why would you say: “I have epilepsy.”
To be included — or excluded?
To be accepted — or rejected?
To be understood — or misunderstood?
To be loved — or laughed at?
I’d say, all of this — or more.
Epilepsy is either a grace — or a dirty word.
It’s all a matter of how you look at it.
And how you say it.
Speak up. Speak out. Shout!
Let the world know.
I am me. No matter what you label me.
I have a voice…a life…and a heart.
You can help me or hurt me.
You can ignore me or plead ignorance.
But I’m not going to go away.
